Why do men play sports recreation games? And why do their wives encourage them to? Being the wife of your typical sports-crazed man, I have investigated the phenomena of fantasy baseball leagues, football leagues, and other game-playing groups. And here is what I found.
Playing table-top and computer games that recreate real-life seasons using statistics, enables the average man to become Vince Lombardi, Casey Stengel, or Red Auerbach. He can manage the world championship team, trade players, and enjoy visualizing the play of the game 먹튀검증.
Baseball and football table-top leagues can be played over the internet. My husband has hosted the business meeting to set up the league rules, the “draft,” and the World Series. I have witnessed men getting ready for head-to-head play, talking to the team in the locker room, deciding when to pull the pitcher, or when to hit-and-run.
Because the games are based on true statistics from a previous season or real-life event, this hobby can recreate the situation where the decision to go for the touchdown may have been the smarter move rather than settling for the field goal.
As the crowd has gotten older and taken up other sports, such as golf, PC golf and table-top golf games have been added to the mix allowing the player to imagine the sweeping vistas of Pebble Beach, and the treacherous links course of St. Andrews. Stand on the tee at the TPC Sawgrass hole number seventeen and decide what club Tiger should use as he goes head-to-head with Arnold Palmer. The gamer can decide whether he can pull off that shot at the Masters that won Phil Mickelson another green jacket.
When its sleeting in Green Bay, he can be warm and snug, while calling the long pass. When the snow is on the links, he can be going for the green in Hawaii. When the boys of summer are still in Fort Lauderdale, he can be pitching in the bottom of the ninth in the World Series.
There are table-top and PC sports recreation games for many different sports, including basketball, soccer, hockey, horse racing, tennis, boxing, and others, even something as off the beaten path as bull-riding.
